Hi, I'm Craig, the creator of this report.  As it is still an add-on, I would be the best to address this issue.

The widths of the boxes are based off of the maximum text length within the report.  So naturally two reports will (should) have different box sizes.  The best way to battle this IMHO is to choose 'Scale report to fit page width only' instead of 'do not scale report.'  This will make sure that the boxes are the same width as they are both scaled to the same page width.  This will regretfully make the text sizes a little different as those scale different as well.

Hope this helps.  If you have any other questions, just ask.  and I'm working hard on a new version and inclusion into Gramps.

thanks and please help with improvements.

P.S. I would like in the future to have an option like this.  Show all of Moms family (out to her cousins) in one report, Dads in another, and then my family.  All in one package.  It would look SWEET on the wall.
